A 55-year-old man is brought to the emergency ...
Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure: increased;
Cardiac output: decreased;
Systemic vascular resistance: increased
Depends on where the infarct is I guess? Crackles in lung base means increased left sided pressure and therefore PCWP. At least that's how I thought of it.
If the Infarct was on the right side they you would have a decrease in PCWP
